My name is April. I know that by the pic, you woudl assume I was some former model or something. You would be half right but I never modeled seriously. Now what I want to do seriously is start my own business from home.
The funny thing is, I have no money. I can`t even say that I have limited income, there is none to spare. I have two young children (5& 2) and more bills than I know what to do with.
Long story short, I have been very entrepreneur/business focused for awhile. I have done so much research on running, starting, funding, and everything else. On top of that, I have a million skills and ideas.
My issue is: Just this morning, I arrived at work late because my 5 yr old is sick and after pleading and begging with the school secretary about how I can not miss work while my son standing next to me souding like he is going to cough up a lung, they allowed him into school just for today. This is the main reason that I have always wanted to start my own business preferrably from home. Not that I think that I would have more time...just more at liberty to re-arrange things without feeling GREAT guilt. Either guilt for having to shove my kid into school when he needs to be home or guilt for not going to work, pacing all day wondering if my job has had enough of the Mommy Blues.
Bottom Line: I have great writing skills but only a Comp 101 course I took in college under my belt. I have written business plans, designed products (specifications and all), and I have a catalog of many things that would be great ideas. I am very stubborn about abandoning the idea of creating my own freedom.
I know that I am not asking anything specific but anything will help. Any ideas that I can try....any one that needs someone virtual to assist them in anything....Thanks Biz People
FYI: I know that alot of funding advice always says to look into family, friends, credit cards and all of those things.....those are not avenues for me.....just keeping it real!!!!
